APWU Health Fair & Plan Options for Newly Converted PSE's


As the coronavirus continues to affect families nationwide, the Health Plan is sensitive to the COVID-19 risks related to work, travel, and social distancing.

PLEASE NOTE: the new career employees will only have 60 calendar days to select their health plan. The new employees that were on the USPS plan as a PSE will be automatically disenrolled. The PSE's currently on the Consumer Drive Option can remain on this plan to keep those benefits. No further action will be needed.

In order to pay the negotiated APWU career rate for the consumer driven option the employee must be enrolled in the federal employee health benefits plan for one year as a career employee. The time spent on the consumer driven option as a PSE doesn't count toward the one year in FEHB.

We want to give new postal career employees an opportunity to meet virtually with APWU Health Plan staff. We will conduct virtual health fairs, and the Member Education department will brief new postal career employees on the benefit highlights for both the High Option and Consumer Driven Option plans.

Most important, there will be a Q & A period to ask staff questions about Health Plan benefits.
